I’m under 18yrs of age, Does this matter?

We welcome younger members into the club, this is the future of the club after all!

This intro ride normally consists of a few laps of our home woodland south of carrigaline. its a well maintained circuit and includes climbs, descents and of a grade green route (no jumps or drops) and we should be completed in about 1 hour. 

Alternatively, we may head to the trails in Ballyhoura depending on numbers etc. 


We aim to host this intro ride on a Saturday/Sunday a few times in the year (you’ll be given plenty of notice when we are about to take out a new group).

This ride caters for potential new members looking to join our amazing club, as well as existing members who would like to rejoin. It is always a very well ‘green’ pace ride and with terrain to suit the grading.
